Stephanie and her boyfriend, Ryan Kigawa, a junior at El Segundo High School, attended the Junior/Senior Prom at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro. While Fort Mac has its origins as an Army facility, it is now run by the Air Force. One nice thing about having a prom on a military base is that parents have a peace of mind knowing that the site is secure (you have to show ID at the guard gate before you’re allowed on the grounds).
After dropping the kids off at the prom, Iris & Ron, along with Ryan’s parents, Laura & Steve Kigawa, drove across Terminal Island to the Shoreline Drive area of Long Beach. We had dinner at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and then went to see the movie X-Men: First Class. The movie ended just before we had to pick the kids up again, so it was good timing.
